projects to the neighborhood who was suffered because of these fees over the years >> you know the first depends upon the project and again speaking on behalf of the eastern neighborhood. in a lot of the cases we have the fund from other sources one of them is 17th and folsom. we're leaning, you know, those projects do take time and one of the most helpful thing is fund to kind of get the design and sort of the predevelopment kind of going. so that's what it sounds like our money is good there >> and for the future and this
1:31 pm
perhaps a very, very go optimistic i idea for the department to have some rainy day fund if the situation comes up again at least the suit of designing could continue in order when the funds come back the projects will be able to move into construction. >> certainly this was the intent so we could start designing the programs. but you're right i mean, there's a very long lead up time especially for the larger project. it's important for the larger projects it only recommendation a smaller cost. those projects require many sources from many locates we
1:32 pm
have one eastern neighborhood plan the impact fees only pay for a small percentage. so some of those projects even if the impact fees coming in will not be released we have to depreciate other source of money >> i think it would follow-on what mr. walters comment. i would agree it would be helpful to know what percentage if there are a anticipated projects what their costs would be and their anticipated impact fees would contribute to that. that's hard to see if you're seeking for a particular community improvement. is there a way to actually
1:33 pm
better engage the outcome. we've had cranes everywhere we don't know if it's at the economy. i'm not sure but the best way through feedback or the survey for developers when they apply for the program would be useful. 98 percent sounds like it's high. i think it would be useful to have that information it would be hard for people to support it if the future >> as you know the program is ending shortly maybe this is a little bit lost but our staff implementation staff is working
1:34 pm
hard to project the incoming projects. this come from the data from the pipeline and when we'll get the fund and their matching that with granting and other implementation work. in large work we're doing the forecasting and making sure we have the projects on the ground >> does this money get leveraged to do the other sources or. >> commissioner. >> ms. rogers i don't know of .

1:36 pm
t the subject area is in the higher areas the shipyard generally at the northeast portion of the site both of them at the higher = vacations of the shipyard. the shipyard is generally not under the land use or the commission apparently but the approval of the shipyard you endorsed this document and one of the provisions you endorses
1:37 pm
are to be approved by you. it addressed the entire shipyard however, when i approved the candle stick project. this is the design projects and this is riverside referred to as parcel a. they consistent of the two neighborhoods the hillside and hilltop neighborhood. it's 11 small-scale blocks. the hillside is located slightly north and it is comprised of roughly four blocks. together will be 16 hundred units are allowed including town houses and small apartment
1:38 pm
buildings. the amendments before you would increase blocks to about 12 to 18 units but it should be noted that this would not increase the total phase one project area rather they would be described across the blocks. this includes slight increases for 1 hundred percent affordable housing projects and design controls for block one which was moved into phase one. other minor changes tighten up the language. i should note that the red line version of the design for development for your review that was sent to you was a later version of a red line we just passed up a more comprehensive
1:39 pm
red line version and they reflected all the changes. the office of community of infrastructure and development staff has worked with us to help to create a vibrant neighborhood. this concludes my presentation for wells lawson from the staff is here as well. i'd be happy to answer any questions >> good afternoon, commissioners director ramp. i'm wells lawson i'm the senior project person. i'll reiterate some of what matt
1:40 pm
today as part of our ongoing obligations we're bringing before you the document this was the amendment the third amendment we've made and would
1:41 pm
accommodate a variety of what we characterize as the larger shipping area. just a refresh those areas are the first phase was approved in 2003 and pass part of that process you approved the document that oversees the designs for the site. and then later we approved the shipyard phase two and the candle stick phrase. 32 percent of those homes are available at below market rates.
1:42 pm
and in addition to that 50 percent of the 3 hundred and 50 acres are open space. waterfront open space. phase one and phase two will generate hundreds of construction jobs each year and provided over $90 million in community benefits. the infrastructure for - showing here with the phase one of the larger project area. the infrastructure portion of that area is complete. we have the separated sewers and recycle water all are complete and the sites are ready for vertical development. we're breaking ground this month. so the amendments themselves again originally the design for
1:43 pm
development was comborsz by the commission in 1997 and again in 2010 we made some anywhere technical adjustments with the approval of phase two. the proposed amendments are needed to bring this document into con forbearance. so we need the document to be in compromise with the code there are a number of pieces that make the project in copy fofrms. the first of the more substantive changes are on block
1:44 pm
one of the upper-left hand corner of this slide. these great pedestrian passage way to the site. in addition we included additional bulk control for the housing lots they were left he unmasked, if you will. now that we're moving forward with the housing portions of the site we need to have great clarity. this is the other change from 167 hundred square feet to 12 hundred plus square feet. those townhome lots are adjacent
1:45 pm
to this massive open space. it's to ensue you could have the parks that connect to the open space. and there's a modest increase in density. and on this same slide shown here we've increased between
1:46 pm
forbearance and in debit and that concludes my presentation. i said to acknowledge and want to recap what the memo said. as i said their administrative in nature. and they also are consistent with the direction we've
1:47 pm
received from the shipyard as well as working with the planning staff. we believe the amendment would provided a greater alignment with the planning code and including provisions for car sharing and parking requirements. and then finally we're excited about the project moving forward. we're breaking ground and this would deliver a project that's been in 10 years of development. this was originally conceived and i want to remind you that the amendment is one, you know, amendment this agreement is one opportunity but this project takes 20 to 25 years no
1:48 pm
development. we'll be back and this is not the last time you'll see us. i'm here the phase one project manager our staff aircraft matt and our folks from the developers to answer questions >> thank you for the presentation. opening it up for comments (calling names) >> thank you, madam chair. i am a member of the k ac and the member of the southeast corridor. i've been watching this for two decades and we're at a instantly we need our approval. i see in 1997 you approved it
1:49 pm
but because of the times we had to come back and ask you for your approval again. i know the people out in the southeast corridor are excited. so thank you very much for your time and opportunity >> any further public comment? >> seeing none, public comment closed. >> yes, i'm in favor of amendment the document. i'm not to make a motion >> i have a question that was stated that we remain with 16 hundred units so someone would say that the units would be less
1:50 pm
dense to make them workout is that true? >> the increase in density is about a one hundred units no total and the explanation for why this 16 hundred actually are shifted into that site is the small portion of the d area was originally part of the first phase and subsequently moved into the second phase. >> oh. okay. so your unit count is 17 hundred? >> no, the unit count will be lower then that. >> for the record the eir phase
1:51 pm
one eir analyzed 16 hundred units now it is part of phase two. fees one is a smaller area now they're only building 15 unit and about 2 add and 50 of those are affordable units. their building far fewer units and the increased density is to bring some of the units onto the phase one. >> thank you. i think it's pretty close. i'm hoping this is one of the opportunities where we can provided for family housing and make sure we can keep it as individualized as possible. looks like you've got a lot of
1:52 pm
town houses in there. it's going to be a large park there towards the top of the him i hill. i would expect construction to begin fairly soon. part of it has the streets laid out and the infrastructure in place >> thank you. >> commissioner. just to clarify so the lots being broken down on soon are those the same lots we're dealing with now? >> if you could pull up the overhead again sorry. you can leave that that's fine >> you'll see at the top of the screen block 50 and 51 we have site permits and job traldz will be getting rolled out.
1:53 pm
those don't need the density increase block 40 does need the increase and the corridor will be up the entrance right up into the parks 53 and 54 and 56 needs those block increases >> do you know if the sizes are changing subsequently? >> what was happening on some of the blocks several blocks have gone fro apartment style buildings to condosor so those opportunities this in see those
1:54 pm
1:55 pm
controls that we see are fully realized in the way this document has been amended so they're in place. so this is a great elaboratetion of project >> commissioners (calling names) that motions passes unanimously 7 to zero. places you think item 10. at thousand channel street. >> good afternoon, commissioners with the planning staff. i'm here today to present the
1:56 pm
general plan amendment to the mission bay south redevelopment plan. your packet contains a red line version of the red line plan. you're also adopting the sequa and monitor planning that was adopted in 2008. your role as the planning commission and after my presentation michael cowen will give a brief presentation that's proposed for block one and captain reilly is here, too. the proposed amendments would change the land designation of block one. let me show you where block one
1:57 pm
is. you can see where block one is on this side of the picture. the project the amendment says that the plan could now provided for a 5 hundred room hotel or a mixed use project that provides for a 250 room hotel and 25 square feet of retail space lowering it where it was previously only hotel space. so the charter says we find the consistency in the redevelopment plan and the general plan. so we have the motion attached. so just a brief explanation. the charter investment group
1:58 pm
conducted a study to determine the feasibility of this large hotel and both determined this was not feasibility but the lesser is feasible. again this was a general plan. i'm going to turn it over to michael cowen to talk about the block one proposal >> thank you. good afternoon. i'm michael cowen i'm a managing principle with the group. we're in mission bay. we're here to show you the plans that will finally bring this important site to life. we purchased block won a year ago. we've been working hard with the planning staff and mayor's office of housing and
1:59 pm
2:00 pm
site has sat hallow with construction occurring all around it. so based on on this basic principle we worked with the agency to figure out what was the right development plan for block one. it's a 2 hundred and 50 room hotel. and 3 hundred and 50 residential units and all laid out in a manner that meets the guidelines that govern mission bay. we think there are a number of governing policy reasons to support the project. first and
